Join us at Robert Walters Sydney CBD office on Thursday 8th November for our next Delivering Value Meet Up.
About the Speaker & Topic:
Agile has been around for a while, morphing from a software paradigm into organisational redesign and ways of working. Along the way, it has created new industries and services ranging from delivery, business agility to training, coaching and mentoring. Reflecting back on where we have come as a global community, this session tries to ask and create a space for shared learning and insights on questions such as "Is (A/a)gile still relevant?" "Are we creating sustainable long-term change and making a difference to the lives of people and organisations?" "Is Agile in clear and present danger?"
Sharing war-stories, real-life insights and having an open conversation on where the community feels we have come and what the future holds for us all, this session is an attempt to move away from the conversations on the business benefits of agile transformations and re-frame agile to be about competency and capability, insights and learning, of people and shared sense of self. This is a collaborative session infused with audience participation, sharing insights and bringing in their real-life war stories to share with others. This is not death by PowerPoint.
